Top Ten Websites
Advantages: Hopefully, something for everyone.
Disadvantages: A bit addictive.
I really enjoy reading about other people's favourite websites and I have picked up a few interesting suggestions from Dooyoo members before.
Here are my 10 top websites; I hope you find something you like too!
www.boden.co.uk I absolutely love Boden clothes but I rarely indulge. However I really love fantasizing about what I might buy if I won the lottery or lost 2 stone! It's a really essay website to navigate and I particularly like how you can zoom on items and have a good look at the details. I also find it very handy to be able to tell straight away if an item is available in your size and colour.
www.ebay.co.uk Whoever invented EBay is my hero! I try to sell anything we don't need any more, any clothes the children have outgrown and over the years I have probably made a small fortune. I also always check EBay before I pay full price for something on another website. Yesterday I bought a new Bare Minerals make-up brush for 99p. They normally retail at £19.99!
www.bbcgoodfood.com This is a great website for anybody who enjoys cooking or who has ran out of ideas on how to feed their family! I particularly like the fact you can focus on one ingredient ( say chicken or mince) and it will suggests dozens if not hundred of recipes using this ingredient. All recipes have been tested and are very reliable. The preparation time is also very realistic and the reader's comments and suggestions are very useful.
www.bbc.co.uk/languages/spanish I am currently trying to improve my Spanish and I spend some time everyday working on my language skills. The language activities here are very good quality and very relevant to my needs. I am hooked on "Mi vida loca", a short interactive course based in Madrid and full of drama and mystery!
www.tripadvisor.co.uk I sometimes wonder how I managed when Tripadvisor did not exist??? On Tripadvisor you can read reviews on any hotel/ restaurant/ tourist attraction in the world. Of course you have to take some of the reviews with a pinch of salt but usually you get a pretty good feel about of a place and what it's like if you read a few reviews. I never book a hotel without checking reviews on Tripadvisor and when I go somewhere new I always compile a list of possible restaurants or places to visit. Some suggestions I have picked up from this website have been truly inspired and I am glad I followed the recommendations of Tripadvisor members! (I also have fun looking at the very worst reviews!! Pick a city and then go to the lowest rated hotels....so funny...and terrifying!)
www.nytimes.com My son is always reading the New York Times on line and I'm afraid I've picked up this habit too. Unfortunately there is a limit of how many feature articles you are allowed to read without subscribing. Having said that, my favourite section is the "movies" ( under "arts") as I think they are particularly insightful reviews and they are usually about films that have not come out here yet. I also enjoy their book reviews and their best-seller lists.
www.amazon.co.uk Again, how did I survive before Amazon? I love books and I love the fact that Amazon always recommends new reads, based on your viewing history. I enjoy coming across books I would love to read and saving them in my wish list. I can send books and music I love to friends and family around the world and one-click ordering just makes my life easy!
www.people.com My guilty pleasure! Who does not like a bit of celebrity gossip?
www.freetetris.org A little old-fashioned I know but I still love Tetris and it clears my mind!
And last but not least, I always try to spread the word about:
freerice.com Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme. It is particularly good for school children as you choose a subject you would like to revise and every time you get the answer right, 10 gr of rice are donated to hungry children. I love the language learning section ( French, Italian, German, Spanish) and my children used it to practice their multiplication tables to death. You can keep track of your progress and see the rice you are donating accumulate. Please pass this on if you have any school age children or if you know any teachers!!
Summary: My 10 favourite websites......not enough space for ALL my favourites though!
